Table-toppers Smashers (SMA) take on second-placed Kings (KGS) in Pondicherry T10 Tournament 2022 final at the Cricket Association Puducherry Siechem Ground on Wednesday, June 8. The match will start at 7:30 PM IST (Indian Standard Time).
SMA vs KGS Dream11 prediction
With only five defeats in 14 matches, Smashers finished the league stage at the top of the table. They are currently on a five-match unbeaten run during which they have defeated Royals, Warriors, Titans, Patriots and Avengers.
Kings, on the other hand, finished level on points with Smashers, but were second due to an inferior net run rate. If not for the two tied games, they would have finished above their Wednesday’s opponents.
Interestingly enough, Smashers and Kings have played two games against each other this season, with both winning one match apiece. The first meeting saw Kings pipping Smashers by a solitary run. The latter returned the favour two days later by defeating Kings by four wickets.
Come Wednesday, Smashers will be the favourites to win the final.
